The 5th Special Forces riggers, one platoon, was located in NhaTrang. Documentation has been difficult to find for these riggers. It is known they were busy keeping many Special Forces outposts supplied. The 109th was ordered to assist in supplying 5th Special Forces outposts in 1967 and 1968. These 5th Special Forces riggers inspired the movie, "Operation Dumbo Drop".
